My partner and I went to vote this morning before leaving for work. Both of us have long commutes and it's just easier to go early rather than late. And we'd never not vote.
We live in a small town in Massachusetts with one polling place, the gymnasium in the local middle school. Parking was tight when we arrived and it was clear that things were hopping. There was no wait once inside, but this is obviously an important election.
In addition to the presidential and senate races--go Obama and Warren!--we have a hotly contested state senate race and a number of important state and local ballot initiatives. The robust turnout was no surprise in my community. . . .
